Thanks to everyone who gave me advice yesterday on the toolset that I should use for a new from-the-ground-up J2EE system. Now for the meetings...
I'll let you know what we end up with.

Just re-reading that other thread.
Might not be really relevant but you may want to consider drawing up some coding standards.
Decisions like; are you going to javadoc private methods, should one-line if statements have braces and where do braces go should not be left to chance ideally.
My choices by the way are, yes, yes and on a line on their own. :-)
We'll use Sun's coding standards ( http://java.sun.com/docs/codeconv/html/CodeConvTOC.doc.html ), and we'll use Checkstyle to enforce them. We might not all *like* them, and all of us will probably disagree with one thing or another. But we'll have far fewer arguments if we just adopt them wholesale. ;-)
